Tips on Tsukiji Market in Tokyo?

Need some tips for a friend. She'll be flying into Tokyo this week (via Haneda) for a few days and was asking for any handy tips on how to make her way to Tsukiji Market to eat (which stalls to go to, any protocol to observe, etc). She has no prior travel knowledge of Tokyo, so this is going to be a major first for her. Thanks!

    Make sure your friend wears proper boots :) and be cautious of the fisherman working.

    - It’s opened for public at 9 a.m
    - The auction takes a little time so pay attention on it.
    - If you want to see a spectacular tuna auction, try to get up at 3 a.m to be one of the first 120 people.
    - No information is given during the auction.
    - At the entrance of the market, there are many small shops full of Japanese dishes and knives for sushi.
    - They only allow 120 people in for the real 5 AM auction so be prepared to go very early, stand on line and pray you get in. Otherwise later in the morning is fun as well. We couldn't wake up early so we started at 9 a.m
    - The market is also known as one of the world's largest fish markets, handling over 2,000 tons of marine products per day.
    - Some restaurants near the market have higher price than others at further location. You should compare the price before entering.
    - At some restaurants, you may need to wait in queue to get in.
    - Although the market never ever smells fishy, you are aware of all the fish being chopped and gutted around you.
    You can view my itinerary in tokyo for 4 days at here.

    Skip eating sushi in Tsukiji. Go to other areas as they are much cheaper and many locals would say, tastes much better.
